Toro Bravo

A restaurant in a quiet neighborhood, virtually next to nothing fills up almost entirely by 5:30pm.  Having just opened its doors a mere thirty minutes prior the pans start to stack up as quickly as dishes constantly keep flowing from the kitchen. I have read about the ridiculously long waits here, (1-2 hours) how they do not accept reservations and it was the best meal some people have ever eaten. While we were in Portland, I was both curious and excited to give it a try. When we pulled up to Toro Bravo at 4:30pm we sat in our car all stalker like until it opened at 5pm. Without a person in sight I began to wonder what was all the hype. Word to the wise: eat at five and if you like paella and empanadas this is the place to go.
